Mystic Valley Tops Notre Dame

 

The New England Patriots were not the only local team to record a big win on Sunday, January 13. The Mystic Valley boys’ varsity basketball squad also recorded an important victory, defeating Notre Dame High School of Lawrence, 53-37, before a supportive home crowd.

 

The game was a see-saw battle throughout the first three quarters before the Eagles had all cyclinders clicking in the final eight-minute frame.  Solid team defense and fast break offense was the winning combination for the Mystic Valley quintet.

 

“We really buckled down on defense in the fourth quarter, which led to fast break points on the other end,” said  Mystic Valley coach Tony Ferullo.  “Our kids are working very hard every day and improving from one game to the next.  I’m proud of how they are all coming together.”

 

Freshman center Matt O’Connor (20 points and 12 rebounds) and senior guard Hari Perisic (19 points and 11 rebounds) led the way for the home team.  

 

The Eagles next game is Tuesday, January 15, at home against Commonwealth Athletic Conference foe, North Shore of Middleton, at 5:30 pm.
